1979 el camino fuel filter

if you have a quadrajet carb it will be right at the fuel inlet, front of the carb. you may have an inline filter instead or also, this would be in the line between the fuel pump (front left side of engine block as you look at the engine) and the carb

i usually remove the one that is in the carb and put in an inline filter myself, it makes replacement so much easier.. the carb housings like to strip out

1979 FoMoCo 4 Barrel carb. Getting good fuel flow and pressure to the carb. Engine will start and run for a few seconds then run out of fuel. New fuel pump has been installed. Can blow through gas...

is the needle opeoning on the float in the carb? The fuel bowl should be about half full all the time. As fuel pressure flows into the needle & seat, it fills the fuel bowl until the float pushes the needle into the eat. Sometimes the rubber tipped needle can stick in the seat.

Holley carb? Autolite carb? Holley 4160?

Sounds like the engine can't breath,
make sure pcv valve is good,or oil cap is vented.
your engine is building up pressure and has no where to vent,so it blows the easiest thing,the dip stick

How to put on a Holley carburetor on my 1984 camaro? I am taking off an electrical one and replacing it with a single pumper holley. Is their any thing else i will have to purchase?

What do you mean "electrical one?" If you are taking off a Quadrajet, and putting the Holley on, NO it will not fit, You will need to replace the intake manifold.

Looking for baseline jetting for holley 850 cfm dp carb

Baseline would all depend on what its going on big block or small block if its a small block a 850 is too much carb. because you have to jet it down so far to get it to run right and not foul the plugs because of to much gas unless its built 650 or 750 would be the right carb for the street you can start with 70 in front and 72 in rear is a good starting point, the thing to do is get a jet kit from holley and experiment with it.
